A rare race-bred Ferrari 250 GT has sold for an eye watering £2.24 million during RM Auctions' annual London sale at Battersea Evolution.

The much sought after car, chassis number 1039, is a 250 GT LWB Tour de France (the car race, not the bike race) – a name the 250 GTs earned after winning the event so many times.
